Jul 13, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I really loved it. If people think it taste like candy it must be good. It's a bar so it has a delicious shortbread cookie (pie crust/butter cookie) flavor, texture, but with a slight bite (or crunch) to it. Awesome filling, and it bakes an amazing lemon sugar candy crust on top that sets it off. I highly recommend it. I have seen them served"

Awesome! I did change this up a bit only because I had a pound of Italian Sausage that I wanted to use. Also, I used fresh frozen tomatoes from the garden, thus using extra tomato paste as they where juice. I used a heaping tablespoon of dry basil as I didn't have fresh on hand in Febuary. So, normally I don't critique or review a recipe that "

Although, I have not been a fan of Paula Deen 's online recipes in the past...this one is fantastic!

This is the prettiest pound cake! It looks so good...too bad there is no flavor to it. I followed the recipe exactly! Of course, with berries and whipped cream, or, a glaze...it would have flavor....maybe adding in some almond extract in addition to the vanilla! Thanks! "

The taste was spot on with this recipe. Using 3#'s of Fresh Pears, the topping was perfect. I just grabbed a pan so I think I put it in more like an 8x12. I used all the topping and it was perfect for 3#'s of pears. There is a lot of juice in the bottom. I imagine the pears where really juicy. I really enjoyed it! "
